The condo was great, comfortable, clean and the screened porch was very nice. Access to the clubhouse pool was an added bonus. I never knew the beaches on the atlantic were so lovely. Close by were many great restaurants and historical attractions. Would go back in a minute.

This was our second stay at Ocean Gallery, we hope to return next year. We never ran out of things to do, between the beach, the pool and touring St. Augustine. There is something for all ages. It felt like being home, but on vacation!
"I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation in unit 5-5 in Las Palmas."

The condo looked exactly like the virtual tour and was very clean and nicely decorated. I liked the lighter color scheme and it made you feel like you were at the beach. It was convienent to be so close to the clubhouse, fitness center, and indoor/outdoor pool. I found some fabulous restaurants nearby, on the intercoastal and ocean! It was very nice to have a screened in lanai, with a view of a lagoon.

We had a great time. We mostly stayed near the condo and went down to the beach just about every day. We enjoyed everything about the condo, especially how cool it is kept, and the large and interesting selection of books. We ate in everyday but one. We liked the Las Palmas pool because of the fish in the pond right there and it was so much quieter than the other locations. My family loved it. My sister was down from New Jersey with her boyfriend, who had never been to St. Augustine. They picked up a surf board rental and we gave that a try for three days. On our final day the waves were a little bigger and we had a great time trying to learn that. We went to the lighthouse, and into St. Augustine twice to check out the fort and some museums. When we left we went south, down to the area near Marineland and some of the inlet sand areas looked pretty nice for fishing, swiming, and pictures. Thank you for the use of your condo. My family had a blast and that is one memorable 4th of July.

Bill and I stayed at your condo in mid-March. There are a few things that really remain with me, three months later. First, the comfort of your luxury mattress king bed in the master suite. It was heavenly! Secondly, the lanai which overlooks the gardens, pool, and fountain was so relaxing. I loved having coffee in the morning and reading later in the afternoon out there. Thirdly, I loved swimming in the large lap pool because it was so warm and comfortable and soothing. Finally, I walked so much on the beach- as far as I could go one direction and just as far the other way. I loved seeing families enjoying themselves, people flying kites, wind surfing and exercising on the beach. What a perfect beach for exercising. I was surprised to see beach bikes! People are able to jog on a fairly nice running surface. Bill enjoyed his long runs on the beach. Finally, thanks for you kind hospitality. Your phone call to us on arrival was great. The home was comfortable and private. We liked the layout of the condo as well as your organized kitchen, comfortable furniture, and cleanliness. All in all, it was a wonderful place to stay while at St. Augustine. If we come back that way, I hope I can try to make arrangements to stay at 55 Las Palmas again as your guests!

We had a great vacation and love your condo. It is very comfortable and we found your king size bed really wonderful. Too often we have stayed at places and could not wait to get home to sleep in our own bed, but I actually think that your bed is better than the one we have at home! The gardens and whole resort is well kept and it was a pleasure to spend time there. We had wonderful weather while we were there and spent every morning on the beach and went for long walks in the evening. Thanks once again for allowing us to rent your place for the week.

Our stay was amazing. One of the things we really enjoyed was how close your condo was to the heated pool. This is where my little ones loved to be and it was so convenient being so close. My dad enjoyed just getting away from being a teacher and relaxing. It's so nice the smell of the ocean and the nice breeze. It's definitely a tradition we want to continue. The condo was very clean and we liked having the upstairs getaway for the kids. My dad enjoyed the spacious master bedroom, and watching movies there with my five year old. We really never left the condo. I went to Publix the night we arrived, so we ate at the condo every night. We had everything we needed and all the detailed info on the fridge was helpful. I appreciate your generosity and allowing us to rent your condo.

We absolutely loved your condo. We spent time at the beach, pool, tennis courts and playing racquetball. We went to the old town one day. Rode segways on the beach one day (favorite). Of course ate dinner out at all the wonderful restaurants. Hopefully we will be staying with you again in the future. Thanks for sharing your place!

We loved staying at your place. I loved the accommodations, the proximity to everything, the cleanliness (as others have remarked on) and all the labels on the cabinetry. We appreciated the DVD collection, and I loved your books. I teach, had just seen Jim Lehrer speak Thursday, and laughed that there were two of his novels present. Heat works fabulously! Needed it one night... it was so cold! Ocean Gallery staff was wonderful and responsive. Played ping pong, exercised in gym, walked on beach, and played tennis. Thank you so much for opening your home. We hope to return soon.

We had a wonderful time. The weather was sunny and hot and your condo was great. We are big hockey fans and our Buffalo Sabres were in the playoffs. We found a "Sabres bar" in St. Augustine and had a great time. Our kids took surfing lessons just down a1a and had the time of their lives. Your beach chairs and wave boards were a nice touch. Thanks for everything.

This place is so Comfortable- we are coming back next year!
This is 5 stars!!! We loved the feeling of this condo from the moment we walked in the door. The colors, the furniture and the screen porch were absolutely inviting. The girls loved their private upstairs bedroom with bathroom. I loved the furniture . . so comfortable. We are coming back!
